A small Minnesota cafe is in hot water with customers because it's charging them to help cover a minimum wage increase.

Oasis Cafe in Stillwater is now charging patrons an additional 35 cents per meal.

Owner Craig Beemer says the fee is meant to offset the 75-cent wage increase that took effect last week.

He says it will cost him 10-thousand dollars more each year to pay his servers 8-dollars an hour.

Angry customers are encouraging others to boycott the restaurant.

So far, Oasis Cafe is the only Minnesota restaurant to add a minimum wage fee to meal tabs.
